In Mrs. Cassidy interview, she talked about how technology is a big part in her classroom. She started using technology in the classroom about ten years ago, she started small with using different websites and it has expanded now into blogging. She stated that she like to use blogs because it help her students improve their writing skills. The students like blogging as well because they can share their writing with people all over the world and have different students comment on their writing. Mrs Cassidy said that the world has change and with the world changing technology is not going anywhere. There are a lot of ways that you can bring technology in the classroom such as; podcast, audio record, websites, etc. So as upcoming educators they need to be more technology literate and lean new approaches to reach the students.
For my classroom, I think of using blogging. I would use this because I agree with Mrs Cassidy, that it will improve students writing. It will help them become a better writer by allow other students to comment on their blog and it will also teach them how to respect others and not say hurtful things to each other.It will also allow the parents to see how their child are doing academically.
In the last interview some of Edm310 students asked Mrs. Cassidy questions. She gave them feedback on how each child should have different account. One for school and one for personal use, for the use of privacy. She Stated that the students should not use their last name nor use pictures with them in it. Mrs. Cassidy also puts safe sites on the class blog for the students to search, to keep them safe and not use dangerous sites.
